You’ll be responsible for managing one full-time retoucher, collaborating with fellow creative team members to create art direction that is on-brief, and delivering artfully crafted assets that elevate each of our brands and channels. 



The Work You’ll Do: 

As a key member of the Thinx, Inc. Creative Team, the Art Director will report to the Creative Director, Art, manage the In-House Retoucher, and work closely with the Copy, Brand, Design, and Production teams. This role requires big creative thinking, an exceptional eye, and will play a lead in bolstering the concepting muscle of the creative team. In addition to collaborating with the creative team to craft multichannel art direction, the Art Director will be responsible for directing photo and video shoots on-set, and overseeing the execution and delivery of all photo and video assets representing the Thinx, Inc. family of brands. 

  • Partner closely with the Creative Director, Art to translate brand visual principles and ideas into functional assets that elevate and evolve the aesthetic for each brand. 
  • Play a leading role in cross-functional concepting sessions that produce fresh, elevated, multi-channel art direction.
  • Collaborate closely with brand copywriters to develop campaign narratives in tandem with visual art direction.
  • Collaborate closely with marketing designers to understand past ad performance and apply learnings to the art direction of each photo and video shoot.
  • Collaborate closely with brand designers to understand how each brand shows up on different channels, and ensure that the photo and video assets being produced for each channel are cohesive
  • Regularly collaborate with the in-house production team, external agencies and freelancers on the consistent application and execution of art direction for all still and video shoots. 
  • Work with the production team to understand shoot calendars and budgets, and possess the foresight to identify and vocalize when additional resources will be needed.
  • Attend photo and video shoots and provide on-set direction
  • Oversee the post-production process from start-to-finish. Make channel-specific image selects, provide retouching notes and technical feedback on a regular basis, and ensure all delivery deadlines are being consistently met.

  • You value and pay attention to the details. You understand the importance of small details when it comes to producing finished creative work, and pay close attention to these elements. You appreciate that these small details are often the pieces that stand between making work that is good vs. work that is great. 
  • You combine an experimental mindset with a relentless focus on execution. You are always learning and bringing up new ideas, but once a direction is chosen you can move fast, deliver high-quality results and keep it consistent.   
  • You are driven and ambitious in your creative pursuits, and you are passionate about the representation of real and diverse bodies in advertising. You believe in and derive a sense of purpose from your creative work, and are constantly in pursuit of new challenges that push your creative growth.
